This is background information

Perhaps Salvador Dalí is the most broadly known member of the Surrealist movement of the early twentieth century. Sigmund Freud influenced Dali strongly. His avant-garde style explored consciousness and dream-like states through exaggerated landscapes and bizarre or grotesque imagery. Using painting, Dalí explored these ideas with a meticulous hand and inventive wit, but he also utilized sculpture, printmaking, film and literature for exploration.  Despite his known role in Surrealism, Dalí was also a seminal example of celebrity showmanship and the cult of personality, a phenomenon that dominates popular culture today. Dalí was a master of self-promotion and spectacle who always maintained a colorful and flamboyant presence with his signature cape, wide-eyed expression and trademark upturned waxed mustache.
